The JV Cougars continued a strong start to the season with a decisive win over Pacific Bay 2 sets to none.
The match started with each team battling point-for-point until the scores were tied at 11. Then the Cougars broke away with some excellent serving, solid defense, and a very high kill rate on offense. The Cougars wrapped up the set with a 25-15 win.
The second set was all about serving. Meagan Mitchell and Jasmine Standez went on a serving spree that denied Pacific Bay any kind of rally for most of the second set. And when an errant ball was sent back over the net, the Cougars quickly put it away. The Cougars finished the set and the match with a landslide 25-6 victory.
Serving standouts for the Cougars were Jasmine Standez with a team high 6 aces on 10 serves followed closely by Meagan Mitchell with 4 aces.
The Cougar offense was led by Mayah Johnson and Iris Grant each with 4 kills on 5 attempts assisted by Joey Vetrone with 8 Assists and Meagan Mitchell with 7. And creating these offensive opportunities was great passing by Hannah Paik, Conner Black, and Mikaela Sendino.
The Defense was led by Conner Black with 6 digs followed by Mikaela Sendino with 4 digs.
The JV Cougars next play in the San Mateo Invitational Tournament at San Mateo High School on Saturday, 9/7.
